In other words,
the bible is a collection of independent volumes, written at different times, in different places, by different people.
Maybe not useful to your topic, but always wise to keep in mind.

So my question is this - why hasn't someone produced the definitive evidence that either the texts of the Bible were embellished the political figures of the time, or that they were factual accounts of miracles, etc.?
Bingo Christianity is new all over again, with renewed interest in learning about 'the faith' and we can finally hear about the more mystical elements of the faith.

think about this.
over the years there has never been an archelogical find that has contradicted what is in the bible.
They have found Jericho, the tower of Babel, and many other places that take place in biblical history and have found all to be consistant with the bible.
it is just a matter of faith if you want to belive in the bible, or wait until the whole thing gets proven
